Sow I* » Prime Fuvorltc of t'ho Pnpalac* of Fiilrli»Ycn, Wimh., mid Kvoa the Touch ICIdinciit ItesrxicU Him. There is a dog in Fairhaven, Wash., Ithatby a resolution passed unanimously •by the common council of that oily is [exempt from taxation and all other or- Idinances that apply toord'mary canines Isojong as he shall live. He is not a '^ome animal, and his name is not Fative of good breeding or respccta- bility. They call him Hobo, and he has •but one eye. His left hind leg is almost lu.sclc.ss also, and his body covered with •tho scars of many a conflict. In somo •spots the hair will never grow again, land his outside loolcs like an old fur Igarinent that has been the home of •moths. But his heart is right nnd ho •has retained the respect of the cntiro • community ever since the 'labor strike lup ia tho Puget Sound country three or •four years ago. I Nobody knows where ho came from, Isays tho Chicago Record. They say •that he drifted in with the tide of hu- Imanity that flowed that way when • everything was prosperous. Nor has I any one claimed ownership. lie lived lln tho street until ho became famous, land since then he has rondo his homo I at police headquarters, where he is I treated with the greatest consideration. 1 There is no dog in all the country that lias more friends than lie, and his bc- rhavioris such as to indicate that ho 1 wants to keep them. During tho labor I troubles there was n narrow escape I'lrom a riot. Several thousand railway I laborers of all nationalities, crazed with I drink and passion, threatened to loot I noacl burn the town, and they gathered I in one of tho principal streets to listen 1 to incendiary talkers who advised them I to do so. The leader oC tho mob was a I worthless, drunken fellow who had I never done an honest day's labor in his iHfosofai" as anyone knew, but had a I gift of gab, and spent most of his time I making speeches to the strikers and I stirring them up to mischief.. It was ho who promised to lead them 1 In tho destruction of the city. The rchie! of police was u brave fellow, and were a tremendous Outcry ana confusion. Everybody ran from the policeman to release the ruffian from the dog, for the two were rolling over ant <>vei' in the street, covered with blooc and dust. This enabled the officer to slip the crowd with hi* prisoner and tip him into a hack, which drove hastily away before they were missed. The man was finally released from the dog, but not until he was so badly bitten that he had to be taken to the hospital, and with many kicks and cuffi and bruises from clubs and stones the enterprising brute Tmnuged to get out of the crowd. But tne diversion broke tip the mob and drove out of their minds all thoughtot arson and plunder, and they did not stop talking about tho incident for several days. | It was a good illustration of the peculiarities of human nature that the tnob gave the dog more sympathy than they offered to the man, and from that day there waa nothing too good for him. They tried to teach him to drink whisky and beer, but lie al.vays refused, and, while'hc accepted the attentions of the "toughs" with dignity, ho kept his distance and remained with the law-and-order party to the end. USE OF OLIVE OIL, 1IE 'SAVED A CITY, | ; ;whe-n nouo of tho patrolmen dared go I Into the crowd and arrest the agitator . he decided to do so himself, lie forced I his way through a mob of more than ]• throe thousand men, grabbed the • ;drunketi orator by tho collar, jerked him off a drygoods box from which ho J \vas speaking and said: "Come along I'-with ne." A thpuKind fists were clenched, a thousand revolvers were drawn, a thousand men had stones or • bricks or clubs in their hands, and the .nervy policeman stood alone among them. Uu't he clung to the collar of his prisoner and tried to drag him along. Then camu a scene of indescribable excitement. A rutlian arose •'before the chief of police and ordered • liirn to relense tho orator, and when ho declined started to attack him. .Just then a huge dog seemed to spring out of the earth. jS'o one noticed him be- I fore, and no one s;iw where ho came [,'from. Proviilence sent him to disperse. that mob and he did it. With a roar .like that of a wild beast he sprang at • tho throat of the ruflian who was interfering witli the chief of police and j ened his .fuiigs in his flesh. There I In Anclont TlmeK It V.'an Employed In Various AV»y». It is a curious aud interesting fact that those fruits which in time past came to us from over the ocean, bathed in the atmosphere of the enchanting Orient, are now acclimated upon the western coast of our own country. Of these one of the most noteworthy and j picturesque is the olive. To all ap- 1 pcaraaees one orange tree is precise!}' like its neighbor. JJiit not so with the olive. No two are alike. Slow of ' growth, indescribably tortured and wrung by the elements, clinging to life ! with intense persistence, it wrests from i earth and air that rich oil that fills a : place subordinate to no other material. | In the days of old it was used for sacrificial libations, as well as for anointing the person and hair; for food and as a vehicle for preparing other foods. In the days of liouian splendor olive oil was used much us we use butter. Like the Greeks the Romans bo- i lieved that the frequent anointing 1 of ! tho body was favorable to vigor and I suppleness. With both nations it waa an indispensable adjunct to the bath. Olive oil ranked next to breadstuff's in value as an agricultural production. Xew Substitute for Golil. The Journal dc 1' Horlogerie claims that a new alloy which it describes is a remarkable substitute for gold. It is composed of 04 parts of copper to 0 of antimony. Tho copper is melted and the antimony is then added. After the two metals have been perfectly fused together, a little magnesium and carbonate of lime is added to increase tho density of the material. The product win be drawn out, wrought nnd soldered just like gold, which it almost exactly resembles when polished. It preserves its color, it is said, even when exposed to the action of am- moniucal salts or nitrous vapors. Tho cost of making it is about twenty-five cents a pound avoirdupois, .VaHturo-Maltlns Is nn Art. There is an art in making a good pasture that every farmer should turn hts attention to. The pasture should be as well taken care of as any part^f the farm. Pasture lauds ought fS^e made as rich as possible. They should be seeded down with a large variety of grasses, those of different habits of growth, time of ripening of seed and of good, rich food value. To the fanner just about to seed clown his land to pasture one thing essential above all others is the thorough preparation of the soil. The land should be well plowed aud replowed, harrowed and reharrowed, so as to pulverize it thoroughly. Switched OS.

Determined Not to Accede to Great Britain's' Demands. A Dlfllcalty In Which the UnlMrt St.itcs Is Vitally Tntcresteil—Admiral Mcaile Instructed to Stand Up for 1 tho Munro« JL>nctrIni*. [Written for This Papir. ] Much has been said and written lately a.bout Great Britain's wanton attack on Venezuela, and American patriots were more thau pleased when tho government of the United States protested against John Bull's attitude and asked that the points at dispute between the two countries be submitted to arbitration. The foreign otlice at London returned a very polite, but sarcastic answer to Secretary Gresham, in which our government was informed that England had nothing to arbitrate. The impudence of this reply was galling to American dignity; and Admiral Meade was dispatched to the mouth of the Orinoco with a powerful fleet to see that neither Great Britain nor any other European power should interfere with the Monroe doctrine. This doctrine, outlined by President Monroe in his seventh annual message PRESIDENT CKESPO. to congress, December 2, IS23, is virtually a declaration of principles regarding the position of the Onitec States towards foreign powers whose governments might bo ambitious to extend their political systems to any por tion of the western hemisphere. Sue! an attempt President Monroe declarec to be "dangerous to our peace and safety," and one that would have to be "counteracted or provided against as we shall deem advisable." The congress of the United States has never given formal sanction to the Monroe doctrine, but every executive has asserted it whenever occasion demanded. Great Britain's present controversy with Venezuela is founded neither on justice nor equity. The South Ameri can republic has some rich province: whose absorption seemed advisable to John Bull, and without hint or ceremony the greedy British lion attempted to devour his prey. Unfortunately for tho beast's appetite, Venezuela, after many years of internal strife, happen: to have a progressive government headed by Joaquin Crespo, soldier and statesman. Instead of being frightened by the threats of the British minister nnd his French and Belgian stool pigeons, President Crespo sent an em phatic protest to the Englishman and passports to his continental allies who attempted to criticise the government of Venezuela, at, what they considered, a favorable and propitious time. But a word about the nature of the trouble which may yet lead te a brush between the American and British squadrons stationed in South American waters. The province of British Guiana was acquired by Great Britain in 1S03, but was not formally ceded by Ilolland until ISM. The territory given up by the Dutch government included the provinces of Deincrara, Berbice and Esequibo, the river of the latter name being claimed as the boundary by Venezuela. This claim has been repeatedly acknowledged by Great Britain; notably in IS-tl, when a British court in Demerara acknowledged Venezuela's undisputed jurisdiction over the Maraca river, and again in 1S74, when a similar acknowledgment was made by the authorities of British Guiana. In view of these decisions, backed as they are bv treaties going back hundreds of years, Great Britain cannot afford to REAR ADMIKAX, K. V. MEABK. L". 3. _N V . agree to arbitration. She knows her :laims to be absolutely without foundation, and realizes that if she wishes to Dring the present negotiations to a successful termination she must either iglit or play a bold game of bluff.

Since then revolution has followed revolution, but in spite of fierce partisan feeling no dietator or president u-;;s ever willing to admit the territorial claims sirt up from time to time by the British government. The city of Caracas, the national capital, is a beautiful place, supplied with all modern improvements, fine churches, museums and a university. It is an important commercial center and does its foreign trade through La Guayra, its seaport, not far from which part of Admiral Mcade's fleet is now at anchor. Both as regards natural resources anc climatic advantages Venezuela is one o the riehest of South American states Its coffee, among- the best grown on the western hemisphere, is in genera demand, and its cacao—exported prin cipally from Maracaibo—is the best in the world. Its vast forests supply vir ttmlly unlimited quantities of rubber sarsaparilla, vanilla, precious woods and medicinal plants. The coast is 1,S70 miles in extent, or longer than, that of California. It has many excel lent harbors, and the lakes of Maracaibo and Valencia have splendid interior ports. More than one thousand rivers drain the land, the Orinoco having no less than -ISO affluents. Some of the trib utaries of this mighty river, which is navigable SoO miles from the ocean, run south and empty into the Amazon. The object of the British government in claiming everything clear up to tht. Orinoco river is to obtain control of its mouth, and thus to command the trade of the vast region drained by it, whicl includes Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador Bolivia, Peru, and reaches as far as Brazil. Recent discoveries of gold in the dis trict coveted by Great Britain have Hac much to do with the unseemly conduct of the London foreign office. The gov crnmcnt of Venezuela has granted valuable franchises to citizens of tin. United States, and the British diplomats realize that if they wish to accomplish their greedy purpose it must be done before the Americans begin to develop their concessions. But leaving aside the legality of these concessions the United States could not afford to permit any European power tograspthe rich territory between the Eseqvriboanc Orinoco rivers. The trade of South America naturally belongs to our country, and to violate the plain provisions of the Monroe doctrine by permitting England to snatch it out of our hands would be a .crime against the nation which neither President Cleveland nor Secretary Gresham would care to father. Moreover, Venezuela has a moral claim on our support which no one in sympathy with republican government should wish to ignore. President Joaquin Crespo. the present chief executive of the Venezuelan republic, is said to be the first man fairly elected to the ofiieo in twenty-five years. According to common report he is an able and conservative man. As soon as reports reached him of Great MAP SHOWDfO BRITISH AXD VENEZUELAN CLAIMS. Britain's aggressive movement in the disputed territory he dispatched a strong body of troops to the frontier, \vithin a short distance of the territory over which England has raised her flag. When a conflict between the troops of the two nations seemed imminent, the United States addressed its now historic protest to the British foreign office and received in reply the diplomatic snub which culminated in the issuing of special orders to Admiral Meadc. Before being elected president Senor Crespo. v.-as a bitter opponent of Guzman Blanco, the famous South American dictator who at one time posed as the owner of Venezuela. The revolution of li?02 ended Guzman's political supremacy. In that year, says an AmerU-in traveler who has just returned from Caracas, Rogris Paul was president, but resigned hi.s office to Palauhio. a creature of Guzman. The anti-Gnzmnnites opposed this action and took the matter to the . supreme court, which decided against Palachio's pretensions. Thereupon tho would-be president imprisoned all members of the supreme court. Crespo at that time was on his immense cattle ranch, and hearing of Palachio's revolutionaj-y xctioTi sent word to him that he must •elcase the members of the supreme court. This Palachio refused to do. thereupon Crespo organized a force of cou-bov soldiers and on the threat of marching on the capitol with them compelled Palachio to release the judges and abandon his elaim to the nresidency- • Castoria is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants and Children.

The state takes its percentage first, says the Fort- nightlv Review, before even the creditors, and thus is caused the avidity by which all state officials and myrmidons drag- to ruin, by Lntrijjueand extortion, large majority of the Italian tax- vinf' public.
